. that means more than 40 percent of the chilean population. in terms of energy was released, you can see there it's one trillion kilograms of tnt, that means an 8.8 earthquake. another comparison could be 18,000 times the hiroshima atomic bomb. it's supposed it occur less than two a year above 8. chili has first runner up with 9.5 with bolivia, 10 minutes duration. this one was 8.8, at that moment was no. 4, then japan next year led next year with 8.9, but it's a lot, a big amount of energy was released in just 3 1/2 minutes. usually that things happen at night. i don't know why, but it always happen at night. so we are leading on february 27 at 3.24 and you can see in light blue the time when the first wave arrived the coast because the epicenter was so close to the coast. so it's no more than 10 minutes and at the same time the waves start moving through the pacific ocean and in 21 hours it hits the coast of hawaii. so everybody was affected because of that. in mexico, for instance, the variation of time was 1 1/2 meters. as you can see there, when that happened, 3.34, immediate

that the rise and shine has more energy needs for more energy than they can produce themselves, and to maintain the economic growth which they believe is essential. we observed that the south china sea is a potential source of energy supplies for china and that there is a contention among the nations in that region as to where the ownership and rights of access are to the south china sea. and this is conceivable that china might seek to reestablish its claim there by military coercion and that could lead them into a confrontation with the united states' desire to maintain free access. the best way of avoiding that military conflict is what we should see because the military conflict with china would be catastrophic for both nations, indeed for the whole region. so, we want to avoid that. i believe the best way of avoiding that is by maintaining a -- continuing to maintain a strong naval presence in the region, and by having an unambiguous commitment to doing that. i believe that our new national security strategy is that unambiguous commitment, and i believe that the u.s. navy is capable of mai

storms coming our way. we have the second and third wave of energy continuing tonight through saturday morning. it's going to linger for about two days. it's going to be the slowest of all the storm systems. as we head into sunday, the fourth and final storm system in our series of storms will arrive. and that's where we think river flooding could be the highest. as all this water will have nowhere to go. for some of you it's going to be worse than others. we'll start to see that rain increase up into the north bay. by 11:00 p.m., showers continuing to push to the south. i think we're going to hold off on some of that heaviest rainfall. it's going to get going again on your morning commute. unfortunately, not only rain, but wind. it could gust to 45 miles per hour. we'll hang on to some showers. as we head into sunday, still more lingering showers, that's where our flood concern comes in, by saturday evening we'll find the next wave of energy starting to move on in into the north bay. here's a look at some of those totals, again the north bay will have the highest concern of any kind o
